  • Testing Requirements

    In general, most systems require inspection and testing every 6 to 12 months, dependent on the frequency of use. If your system is not visibly tagged as compliant, it should not be used until a competent specialist completes a test and inspection. A non-compliant system may not only invalidate insurance but can also put lives at risk and render you liable in the case of an incident.

  • Unique Asset Management Software

    Heightsafe’s unique digital asset management software, Prime, has been designed by an dedicated in-house software specialist to provide clients with the ability to fully manage and view their own portfolio and projects – using just one platform.

    This software makes managing important data, site reports, images and certificates a convenient process, offering unequalled functionality that ensures all sites are compliant with the latest Health and Safety legislation.
